“Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!Starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Anand Tiwari, Divya Menon, Swastika Mukherjee; directed by Dibakar Banerjee; music by Sneha Khanwalkar.

From the National Award winning director of “Khosla Ka Ghosla,” this crime thriller is based on the fictional detective Byomkesh Bakshy created by writer Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay. The film is set in war-torn Calcutta during the 1940s and follows the first adventure of Byomkesh Bakshy. Sushant Singh Rajput plays the title role, an arrogant genius always seeking the truth pitted against a criminal out to destroy the world. Anand Tiwari plays his sidekick Ajit Bandyopadhyay and Divya Menon is Satyawati, his lady love. A missing opium shipment starts the intrigue. An unsolved murder of a newly wedded couple, several dead gang members, and Japanese spies add to the mystery. Several colorful characters round out the plot. Gloom hangs over the by-lanes of Calcutta’s Chinatown when all opium has gone missing. Police are under pressure to restore order before a royal visit. Swastika Mukherjee plays a popular star, Anguri Devi, a character inspired by the famous double agent Mata Hari. The makers say Bakshy must match wits “against the most villainous arch criminal the world has seen, in a world of murder, international political intrigue and seduction.” Great effort has been made to capture the look of the era.

Dharam Sankat Mein” Starring Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah, Annu Kapoor, Auritra Ghosh; directed by Fuwad Khan; music by Meet Bros Anjjan, Sachin Gupta, Jatinder Shah.

From the makers of “OMG - Oh My God” and starring three National Award winners, this entertainer revolves around a Hindu man who discovers that he was adopted and was actually born in a Muslim family. The satire is an official remake of the 2010 British comedy “The Infidel.” The sudden revelation of his adoption leads to an identity crisis for Dharampal, played by Paresh Rawal, and prompts him to search for people who may know about his birthplace and find his real father. There begins a humorous journey, which shatters Dharampal's stereotypical beliefs about religions and leads to many comical situations. All this takes place while he tries to keep the matter secret as his son nuptials are being arranged. Expect stalwart performances from Naseeruddin Shah who plays Neelanand Baba, an eccentric spiritual leader with a massive devotee following and Annu Kapoor as Nawab Bahadur who Dharampal consults for assistance in his quest. The background score is catchy and upbeat.
